X Pipe mod or Straight pipes

I'm looking to get my exhaust modded since the stock one doesn't sound so loud to me. Which mod should i get that would suit me as a DD? I don't want something with a shit loud of drone. And maybe some hp or torque gains while at it

OEM exhaust mod. Great sound and a fraction of the price. If you don't know what it sounds like do a search on youtube for OEM exhaust mod. I went this route and couldn't be happier...

Just do a search for OEM exhaust mod. You will find plenty of videos for it... That's the primary name.

Get test pipes. You'll get the most power, great sound and won't have to mod your stock exhaust if you don't want too

You will also get a check engine light and a very raspy sound

Straight pipes, all the e92 m3 needs is a drop and to take out the cats, end of story

I did both and enjoyed it a lot. Forget all those fancy exhaust.

X-Pipe Mod + OEM Backbox done. Stupid raspy loud.
Plenty videos on my channel

I wouldn't recommend the combination.
